Structural Studies of Plasma Lipoproteins

Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 27)


Plasma lipoproteins play a central role in the regulation of lipid metabolism. Details of the organization of plasma lipoproteins at the molecular level are necessary for a basic understanding of the principles that govern lipoprotein assembly, interconversion, and metabolism.
